Abstract
The position sensitive semiconductor Medipix2 detector has been adapted for high–resolution dental X–ray and neutron imaging. As a fully electronic, low–dose and high spatial resolution digital dental imaging device the system aims to observe the bone–to–implant tissue of order of tens of microns. Neutron radiography is proposed as a complementary diagnostic method to standard X–ray radiography as it can produce contrast images of materials which are otherwise indistinguishable in X–ray images. Neutron radiography and tomography tests have been carried out. Results are compared with other techniques. A review of recent developments and current status is presented.
